What a way to spend Christmas. My friends and I all arrived in Tenerife to spend the festive time on board Pullmantur Horizon and journeying around lovely hot Canary Islands. All aboard on the 21st December 2017 with our first experience of this lovely ship though an elderly lady of the seas ! . The Spanish ran ship has a good mix of British, Spanish and other nationalities. All announcements are first made in Spanish then English. The ship needs continual tender loving care especially on the outer deck areas. Our Cabin was spacious, comfortable and above all squeaky clean. Our luggage arrived speedily which gave us chance to change and explore the ship. Although room service is only once a day this was more than adequate for our needs. Our first place to seek out was the buffet and pool bar. Very impressed with the quality and layout of the main buffet, not the greatest of choice but the quality was excellent and there is a selection for vegetarians and non gluten guests. The standard drinks package included in the price was ok but limited on choice. We chose to upgrade for an extra €10 a day and this was really good value for money as we then had a much greater choice of drinks. We decided as group to eat at the second sitting in the lovely main restaurant. For all the menu has a set choice each evening that does not change, there is a daily À la cart. We enjoyed our time in the restaurant and aboard ship especially the entertainment in the theatre and above all the friendly atmosphere created by all the members of crew and officers. This cruise was certainly value for money and I not only recommend it but we will cruise again with them.
